First public appearance since tying the knot

In one heartwarming snapshot shared by a Twitter user known as @avengermama, Chris playfully posed with his ring on full display. Several other event photos also captured the actor proudly flaunting his wedding ring. The actor’s attendance at the New York City event signalled his first public sighting following a private wedding ceremony held on September 9 at an estate in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, where he exchanged vows with Baptista, 26.

‘I got married’

The Captain America star also addressed his recent marriage to the Warrior Nun actress for the first time at New York Comic Con. “I got married,” Chris revealed to the Javits Center audience on October 14. “It was really, really great.” The star continued, “We kind of had two ceremonies. We had one on the East Coast, we did one in Portugal—my wife’s Portuguese. Yeah, yeah! Go Portugal!”

Chris added the pair’s wedding ceremonies were “wonderful and beautiful.” He said, “It’s a lot, planning a wedding. It’s a lot. Those of you who are married [know] it takes a lot out of you. But now that we’re through that, we’re just kind of been enjoying life, gearing up for autumn, my favorite season. It’s like, the best time of year right now. Now we’re just relaxing and enjoying life and reflecting.”

Chris and Alba went official in January 2022

The newlyweds have been linked since 2021, but it wasn’t until January of this year that they decided to make their relationship public. A source close to the couple, speaking to Us Weekly, revealed that their relationship had evolved to a more serious stage.

“Chris and Alba have gotten serious,” the insider dished about the pair. “This is the most committed anyone can remember him being in a very long time, if not ever,” the source added. “They spend most of their time at his place in Massachusetts and love the quiet life there, surrounded by nature and away from the spotlight,” the insider continued. “Chris was very open that he wanted to take his time before settling down.”
